16% of Canadians have a disability. Previous studies have mostly focused on workplace accommodation. This study will investigate job factors as predictors of organization-based self-esteem (OBSE) among employees with disabilities. The expected result is that the greater the satisfaction that PWDs find in the selected job factors, the higher the OBSE level. Hence, if organizations succeed in optimizing these factors, they will engage and retain PWDs.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Gaining knowledge about job factors as predictors of OBSE
  • Identify research gaps in the field of disability
  • How this research will help organizations to engage and retain PWDs
